Around the Campus 

Construction of the new Stout Institute li- 
brary is well underway, with occupancy possible 
for the next college year. The building is located 
on the block south of Ninth Avenue, between Sec- 
ond and Third Streets. For a time, after the or- 
iginal houses were moved, the property was used 
as a parking lot. 

Cost .of the project will be approximately 
$600,000 and will provide space for 60,000 vol- 
umes together with such long-desired facilities as 
a reserve reading room, a memorial room, and 
seminar rooms. 

The building is to be of brick .and steel con- 
struction and will be of the most modern arrange- 
ment. Architects are Foeller, Schober, Berners, 
Safford and Jahn, a Green Bay firm of specialists 
in library planning. 

Facing Second street, the front of the build- 
ing will be 30 feet from the curb and the north 
wall will be 40 feet from the Ninth avenue. The 
front of the building will have an overall width of 
121 feet and depth for 128 feet. 

Entrance will be through a vestibule into a 
lobby to the. right of which will be a Memorial 
room and to the rear of which will be the circula- 
tion lobby with the card catalogue files and the 
main desk. 

To the left of this lobby will be the entrance 
to the combined main and reserve reading room 
seating 250 persons. On the second street end of 
the reading room there will be the periodical room. 
The main book stacks will be to the rear of the 
circulation lobby and running along the south .side 
of the reading room. 

These stacks will provide space for 45,000

Dear Fellow Members : 

In our society, it is certainly an honor to be 
asked to participate in a launching ceremony. 
Thus I am very proud that the Executive Secre- 
tary of the National Stout Institute Alumni As- 
sociation and the .other Stout faculty members res- 
ponsible for this publication have asked me to 
launch The Stout Alumni Newsletter. 

We at the college are indeed happy to provide 
this new medium, which is designed to serve our 
alumni throughout the world. But we feel that its 
rewards will be two-fold. Not only will The Alumni 
Newsletter strengthen the ties which join the 
members of our widely-separated family of gradu- 
ates, but it will also bring news of alumni accom- 
plishments back to' our campus. 

Just as you alumni enjoy learning the where- 
abouts and achievements of your former class- 
mates, we at the college enjoy knowing the pro- 
gress of our former studnets. It is in achieving 
just such communication that an alumni associa- 
tion renders its greatest service. And it is to faci- 
litate such service that this publication has been 

Therefore, let us launch The Stout Alumni 
Newsletter on her maiden voyage. She is a vessel 
carrying a delightful cargo in a worthy cause. May 
I wish to her and to her crew a most pleasant and 
extended cruise. 

Sincerely Yours, 
Verne C. Fryklund

Factors for College Success 

A frequent and welcome source of students 
enrolling at Stout is the influence of Stout gradu- 
ates now in the field. It has been frequently said, 
and with truth, that, "The greatest advertising 
which The Stout Institute receives is through the 
recommendations of its alumni." 

To inform these alumni that the college is 
genuinely grateful for their efforts in directing 
students to Stout, and to provide concrete infor- 
mation answering many questions often posed by 
prospective enrollees, the following has been de- 
veloped : 

What are the requisites for a student's suc- 
cess at Stout? The following statements suggest 
some factors which are desirable in any student 
seeking admission: J 

1. Those who rank in the lower third of their 
high school graduating class have only 1 
to 5 to achieve a "C" average or better. 

2. Having had one or two units of high school 
industrial arts for boys may be desirable, 
but not essential. Interest rather than ex- 
perience in the areas of our specialties is 

3. As college mathematics through trigono- 
metry is required of all industrial educa- 
tion majors at Stout, men entrants should 
either have experienced reasonable suc- 
cess in high school elementary algebra or 

have demonstrated some aptitude for al- 
gebra in other ways. 

4. Success in other high school subjects is as 
important as success in home economics 
or industrial arts in predicting scholastic 
success at Stout. 

Milwaukee Chapter is Host 

The Milwaukee Chapter of the National Stout 
Alumni Association played the very congenial and 
helpful host to Stout alumni attending the WEA 
convention in that city. 

A delicious turkey dinner highlighted the ev- 
ening and all guests had a wonderful time. Ken- 
neth Schank, well-known Stout alumnus, was 
toastmaster for the evening. C. A. Bowman spoke 
of Stout's present status and of his emotions upon 
retiring from the faculty. 

Group singing, renewal of acquaintanceships 
and reminiscences brought the successful affair 
to a close. 


The National Stout Institute Alumni Asso- 
ciation will gladly mail the weekly Stoutonia to 
any and all former Stout students who are in the 
armed forces if tlieir names and addresses are 
made known to the alumni office. 

Ship Citation to Ericson 

EMANUEL E. ERICSON, Professor of In- 
dustrial Arts and Assistant Director of University 
Extension, Santa Barbara College, University of 
California, we of THE SHIP are pleased and hon- 
ored by this opportunity to recognize publicly 
your distinguished service to education. 

Professor Erickson is credited with the re- 
sponsibility of having trained more industrial arts 
teachers than any other man in California. He also 
was the spark plug in connection with the start- 
ing of the building program on the Mesa campus 
and the planning of the Industrial Arts Depart- 
ment buildings. 

The Ship Organization is made up of com- 
mercial exhibitors who are engaged in the pro- 
motion of technical and industrial equipment, elec- 
tronics, all phases of industrial arts and photog- 
raphy equipment, and who, through their activity 
in the American Vocational Association, are inter- 
ested in the education of the youth, through the 
use of technical equipment, and in the establish- 
ment of a technical education program in Amrica. 

The citation is a yearly presentation, made at 
the time all the members of the organization meet 
for an exhibition of their products. 

A Stout Institute graduate of 1919, Profes- 
sor Emanuel E. Erickson, has been made recipient 
of the highly prized "Ship's Citation" awarded 
for outstanding national service and leadership in 
the field of industrial arts. 

Boston, Massachusetts — -"The home of the 
bean and the cod" — was the site of a Stout alumni 
breakfast at the Bradford Hotel on December 2. 
Attending were Stout alumni participating in the 
AVA convention, also held in Boston. 

Dr. Bob Rudiger, alumni secretary, introduc- 
ed alumni members and their guests. President 
Verne C. Fryklund spoke to the group, explaining 
many changes which are taking place at the col- 
lege. A lively discussion period followed, includ- 
ing the showing of pictures of campus improve- 

A total of 36 alumni, from all parts of the 
nation, were present for the breakfast and to live 
again in old times on the Stout campus. 


The National Alumni Association is now is- 
suing joint memberships to husbands and wives 
who are both Stout alumni. Cost of this joint 
membership is the same as that of a single mem- 

All alumni whose marital status qualifies 
them for this savings plan are urged to take ad- 
vantage of the offer. All that the alumi executive 
secretary requests is that all applications for joint 
memberships contain both the husbands name and 
Ms wife's maiden name and year of graduation of 
■each so that the alumni office files will be accurate 
and up-to-date.

Detroit Chapter New§ 

The following interesting 1 letter, reporting ,on 
the type of activities which make an alumni chap-

itan Detroit Stout Alumni Association, I wish to 
send you the following account of our Mid-winter 
party for your newsletter. 

The Metropolitan Detroit Stout Alumni As- 
sociation held its annual mid-winter party en- 
titled, "The Tacky Drag," at the Birmingham 
Community Hall, in a setting reminescent .of the 
past for Stout graduates. 

Home talent of professional degree wan in ev- 
idence in the skits and musical numbers which 
followed a sumptuous dinner. Drawing of door 
prizes, card playing and visiting with old friends 
completed the evening's entertainment. 

Harry Keller kept the ball rolling as master 
of ceremonies. With the aid of Mrs. Keller, Mrs. 
Win. Peterson, Mr. & Mrs. Walt Tiede, Mr. & Mrs. 
Henry Hulter and Mr. & Mrs. Mario McCullough, 
he planned and made possible this delightful party. 

It was so very pleasant to renew acquain- 
tances with the following Stout friends : Vernetta 
& Francis Shaw, Emma & Ira Madden, Betty & 
Fred Decker, Marion & Fred Curran, Irma & Floyd 
Burgess, Marion & Harry Stevens, Mildred &

Immediately above the first floor, stack room 
will be a mezzanine stack room of equal size with 
space for 42,750 volumes, a sound-proof typing 
room and a staff lounge. 

On the ground floor will be the stack room 
for text books with a book repair area and typing 
area, four large seminar rooms, audio visual room, 
a receiving and storage room, two other storage 
rooms, a text book exhibit room, special work 
room, building service room and toilets. 

Persons reading this newsletter will undoubt- 
edly be interested in information concerning the 
coming Stout Institute summer session, June 15 
to July 24, especially as it pertains to housing and 
to changes in the Plan B technique of the Grad- 
uate Program. 

Housing at Menomonie does not pose any- 
thing like the problem found in many large univer- 
sity cities at summer session time. Veteran hous- 
ing ranges from $25.00 down to $20.00 per month, 
with rent cost decreasing as family size increases. 

Changes in the graduate B plan are described 
at length in the 1952-54 Stout Institute Regular 
Session Bulletin (pp. 109-122). However, the re- 
visions are also outlined below : 

The purpose of the revised Plan (B) is to per- 
mit graduate students an opportunity' to secure 
additional course work with an emphasis on mas- 
ter teacher objectives. Students electing this plan 
must complete a total of 30 semester hours of 
course work, including the courses: Ed. 501 Re- 
search Procedures ; I.E. 510 Problems in Indus- 
trial Education and Ed. 561 Educational Statis- 
tics if not included in undergraduate courses. 

Plan (B) includes the preparation of a writ- 
ten report, in addition to or in conjunction with 
the regular course work in one of the 500 series 
graduates courses. The report must be acceptable 
to the instructor of the graduate course in terms 
of subject, content, and form. One typewritten 
copy must be presented to the instructor at least 
one week prior to the end of the course, or at such 
. time as the instructor may designate. Written 
notice that the paper has been completed and is 
acceptable, signed by the instructor in charge of 
the course, must be filed in the graduate office. 
The typewritten report must be filed in the in- 
structor's office. .

Your Secretary Reportst 

The years come and go and even political 
parties finally change in Washington, but many 
of the civil service employees of The Stout Insti- 
tute stay right on the job, rendering the excel- 
lent service needed to keep the college in good 
running order. 

■A man of 43 years of such service is Fred 
Retzloff, full-time custodian at the college since 
1910 and a part-time employee for some years be- 
fore that. Fred started literally from "the ground 
up," working with his father to sweep the base- 
ment of the school when Fred was but ten years 

August Domke, on the job as gymnasium 
costodian and general athletic handyman, has 30 
years of service to his credit. "Augie is still as 
spry and cheerful as he was when many of the 
"older" alumni were in the flaming youth. 

Bill Neubauer, congenial elevator operator in 
the Home Economics building-now Harvey Hall- 
still keeps his job, which has many "ups and 
downs" about it as when he began 21 years ago. 
The years have in no way, however, lessened Bill's 
friendly spirit and cheerful outlook. 

Reserving the concluding spot for the ladies, 
we find Olga Brekke, pie-maker supreme, still on 
the job in the cafeteria. After many years of mak- 
ing culinary delights and many miles of pie crust, 
Olga still turns out desserts that are tops among 
the students. . 

Yes, a staff of trained, loyal, competent civil 
service employees is a vital cog in the smoothly- 
operating machine of a modern college. The faith- 
ful employee described above, together with 
their many colleagues of fewer years tenure, de- 
serve a world of credit for the services which they 
have rendered to all of us. 

Alumni who have not visited The Stout In- 
stitute campus for a number of years may wonder 
as to the whereabouts of certain of their former 

A number of faculty members have retired 
and have had conferred upon them the little title 
of "Emeritus" by the Board of Trustees of The 
Stout Institute. Former President Burton E. Nel- 
son, who still resides in Menomonie, holds the rank 
of president emeritus. 

Other emeritus appointments have also been 
made. Ruth E. Michaels, who now makes her home 
in Chicago, reports that she still does much travel- 
ing. Miss Lillian Carson of the home economics de- 
partment still owns the Grey Barn apartments in 
Menomonie and lives there. 

Miss Mabel Leedom, formerly of The Stout 
Institute chemistry department, maintains her 
home in Menomonie. Miss Mary McCalmont, a re- 
cent faculty person to retire, resides at her home 
in Menomonie and takes a very active interest in 
church work.

One of the New Sewing Laboratories. 

Among the men, a number have recently re- 
tired and received the emeritus title. Clyde A. 
Bowman, who retired in January after 33 years 
as dean of industrial education, is busy with plans 
to make California his permanent home. 

H. M. Hansen of the woodworking department 
still owns his home in Menomonie but he and Mrs. 
Hansen are spending the winter in Florida. F. E. 
Tustispn, who retired in 1951, is also a Menomonie 
home owner but, as a great trailer enthusiast, is 
spending the winter in Arizona. 

Fred Curran, who retired in 1941, has a re- 
cently-constructed home in Menomonie. However, 
he and Mrs. Curran enjoy Florida's balmy climate 
during the winter. 

Other emeritus faculty persons but those 
whose present location or activities are less-known 
to the editors of this bulletin, include: Clara 
Broughton, formerly of home economics educa- 
tion ; Freda Bachmann,- biological science ; M. Win- 
nona Cruise, food and nutrition; Alice Houston, 
director of nursery school; and Mabel C. Rogers, 

Among deceased members of The Stout Insti- 
tute staff are Harry F, Good, electricity and phy- 
sics; Arthur G. Brown, industrial education and 
guidance; Bruce Antrim, library; Louise Bucha- 
nan, foods; B. M. Funk, business manager; Daniel 
Green, drawing; and William Baiker, graphic arts 
and also former National Alumni Secretary. 

A new life member of the National Stout In- 
stitute Alumni Association is Jean Bulmer, a 1951 
home economics graduate. Jean, who took out her 
life membership last fall, reports that she is teach- 
ing foods to the 7th and 9th grades in the Wausau 
Junior High School. 

In filling out her alumni questionnaire, Miss 
Bulmer reports the following Stout Institute alum- 
ni in her school: S. R. Slade ('34), principal of 
Wausau Junior High School; George Guenther 
('23), teaching industrial arts at that school; and 
George Biwek ('32) the coach at that same school.

Did you attend Stout's 1952 homecoming-??? 

Well, 192 loyal alumni signed the attendance 
book and enjoyed a wonderful time with the bon- 
fire, parade, and — best of all — Stout's 38 to 
victory over Eau Claire, Stout's friendly but en- 
ergetic rivals. 

Graduates attending- who held the distinction 
of having attended Stout long ago included Dean 
C. A. Bowman, '09 and Mrs. W. R. Kirk, '09. Other- 
graduates of years for past were Gerhard Skogs- 
mark, '15; Dr. J. E. Ray, '22; Virginia Ray, '24; 
and Wes Burdicke '24. 

Attending from the greatest distance was 
Robert 0. Johnson '38, who came from the Naval 
Air Station, Pawtucket River, Maryland. 

GRADS OF 1943: Plan to attend the 1953 
homecoming celebration ! The Stout Tea Room has 
been reserved for a 12 o'clock luncheon to provide 
a wonderful opportunity to renew acquaintances 
with your former classmates. 

Keep your address up to date with the Alumni 
office so that you will receive a card next fall to 
make reservations for this reunion. Fellowsand 
gals who, through wartime service, marriage, 
transfer, or other reasons, started with this class, 
but were unable to be graduated in 1943, are also 
urged to attend the reunion. Don't forget to plan 
for this reunion.

As the organization and operation of local 
chapters is the backbone of the National Alumni 
Association, the executive secretary sends out the 
following message to areas where Stout graduates 
reside and where only a little effort is necessary 
to start the ball rolling toward the formation of 
a new, lively, worthwhile chapter: 

Let's make this the year to organize a local 
Stout Institute Alumni Chapter in your commun- 
ity. By organizing a group of Stout grads you will 
be able to recapture the school spirit of your Alma 

Many grads have said at conventions and 
gatherings, "How about organizing our Stout 
grads in this area this year?" However, this seems 
to be as far as it goes. Make this year be an 
exception — find a few interested grads and meet 
as a nucleus group. Plan a simple dinner, lunch- 
eon, or picnic for all the alumni in your area. At 
such a time elect officers and appoint some basic 
committees for future get-to-gethers. 

Your national office will provide such infor- 
mation as addresses of grads in your area and 
suggestions as to how to go about setting up a 
local chapter. 

We in the national office are very interested 
in keeping our alumni together. Let us hear from 

Your alumni secretary, 
Robert Rudiger
